The idea for this painting came as I watched a tui singing in our walnut tree.  It was silhouetted against the sky so that all I could see was the outline of its body, and it was singing with such gusto that it was puffed up like a balloon with all its feathers fluffed out in little spikes.  I've always thought of tuis as very slim birds so I was fascinated to see this rotund version!

I decided on a simple colour palette to keep the focus on the subject, so I mirrored the greens and blues of the plumage within the tree branch and the background.  Trying to capture the gorgeous metallic sheen of the feathers was a challenge, and hard to do justice to with paint.

As in most of my Feathers & Fluff series, there is a little critter in this painting - these are sometimes hidden, sometimes part of the composition.  This one should be easy to spot!

The original painting of Lace & Ruffles is available for purchase.
